OTHER SOLID-STATE DEVICES
OTHER SOLID-STATE DEVICESThere are several types of hybrid solid-state devices currently available. Many of these have been designed to function under specific conditions and perform specific operations. Eight specialized semiconductors are commonly known as JFETs, MOSFETs, thyristors, zener diodes, light-emitting diodes, photodiodes, LASCRs, and LCDs.The junction field-effect transistor (JFET) is very similar to a junction transistor; however, a JFET is considered to be voltage-sensitive; a junction transistor is current-sensitive. Figure 6-69 shows the symbol of a JFET. The connections of a JFET are the gate, which is the…
